Top critical review
Good, nicely designed keyboard - Though my keyboard was faulty.
6 August 2018
To start this short review, I would like to point out that I have used this keyboard for just over 3 hours now. I do not want to put off any potential buyers looking into buying this keyboard. Logitech rarely goes wrong with their devices and peripherals. However, today is the day I had a faulty purchase. Upon buying the keyboard, there was nothing wrong exterior-wise, just the fact that a single key, and as it turns out to be the most important key for gaming, did not fully function correctly.
The 'W' key was faulty in a sense that pushing the button down with small force did not trigger the function of the button. I had to either angle it forwards and push down or push down a bit harder in the centre to trigger it. The problem I have with this is that a so-called 'gaming keyboard' SHOULD NOT have any problems with its keys, ESPECIALLY the most important heavily-used keys like 'WASD' (hence the 2 stars in the 'for gaming' category). In my honest opinion, if the 'W' key or any valuable key is faulty, or not functioning at 100% as it should be, it should be returned and reconfigured by the manufacturers. But like the title states, my keyboard turned out to be faulty. I do not speak on behalf of every keyboard sent to each customer.
On a side note, the positives of the keyboard are that, if you choose to buy the keyboard with the palm rest/wrist rest, there is plenty of space without the trouble of getting Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) from long-term gaming hours. It is comfortable and the additional sound/volume audio control located at the top right section of the keyboard is very accessible and has a nice rubber feel to the buttons. I cannot comment on the durability of the keyboard since I had it for roughly 3 hours before packing it all back up in getting ready to send it back. All in all, it is a fairly comfortable keyboard to use, but to ensure what I said is 100% accurate, I will purchase the keyboard (hoping this time it will have no faults) again and see how it goes.
It should be noted as well that you cannot control the backlighting RGB of the keyboard itself, it goes on a rotation of the spectrum of colours (16 million colours or however many it claims to have) and you also cannot control how bright the backlit colour is either. You can only turn it on or off. But it is not highly bright nor is it dim, so in my opinion, it has the right amount of brightness.
I rate it 3 stars in total overall, due to the 'W' faulty key, had it been not a problem, it would have been a solid 4 stars for what it has to offer in the extra advanced features.
